The ingredients above are for the recipe below.  It’s a very simple and flavorful recipe. 

Lidia’s Italy

pesto-blended    pesto-in-blender

The sauce can be blended while the spaghetti cooks.  The almonds can be toasted while the tomatoes and garlic blend. 


I enjoyed the meal but it left me feeling there was something that could improve the taste.  After adding parsley to the top it helped.  Next time I might use a different kind of tomato, and walnuts instead of almonds.  Perhaps more basil would add even more flavor.  Let me know if anyone has other suggestions, or has tried a variation of this recipe that was better.

  1. My husband is in love with Lidia, heavy handed with the olive oil, but a great cook. I love your photo of the ingredients.
